Getting the Most Out of Your Visit
To fully experience the Noah Webster House and museum, we recommend that you reserve an hour or two for your visit.
Guests have the opportunity to enjoy an orientation film (Noah Webster: Schoolmaster of America) in our 19th-century schoolhouse theater. You can also explore our exhibit Noah Webster: Defining American; after that, enjoy a tour of Webster’s birthplace via our new tablet tour, or when available, one of our experienced guides. Family groups will not want to miss Noah’s Discovery Learning Space – three rooms of fun hands-on activities that explore young Webster’s life and 18th-century America.
Save some time for one of our changing exhibits and our gift shop featuring Noah Webster and West Hartford related items. And if you have time in town, visit West Hartford Center which features Blue Back Square (named after Webster’s Blue-Backed Speller) and Webster Walk.
